Western Canada has a strong community of volunteers, donors and sponsors PLUS an innovative team of researchers and health professionals. These people are the heart and soul of our organization, and there are so many exciting ways to get involved. Every community, large or small, has the potential to help us improve the lives of those affected by Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and bring us closer to finding cures.

Crohn's and Colitis Canada Chapter Meetings: These illnesses are much more manageable when the community comes together, shares and learns from one another. Chapter Meetings presented by Crohn's and Colitis Canada are a time for people with inflammatory bowel disease to come together to support each other. 

Our focus is to create awareness of these diseases locally, improve the lives of those living with Crohn's and colitis, to grow our volunteer base and to raise funds to invest in research, patient programs, advocacy and awareness.

The meetings are a time to share experiences and both give and receive support.  Time will be set aside during each chapter meeting for networking and discussing topics relevant to living with Crohn's disease and/or ulcerative colitis.

We welcome newcomers – contact us today and, together, we’ll Make it stop. For life.

Gutsy Learning Series Fall 2017

Living with Crohn’s or colitis is complicated.
 
The most common symptoms of abdominal pain, fatigue, and diarrhea are hard enough to live with, but throw complications like fistulas, reduced bone density or cancer into the mix, and things can start to sound a little daunting. Our expert speakers will help you understand what to expect and how you can manage your disease.
 
Take charge of your health by joining us on Thursday, November 30 from 6:30-8 pm EST for our Fall 2017 Gutsy Learning Series, an innovative patient learning experience. 
 
Whether you’re attending in person at McMaster University in Hamilton or registering to watch the live webcast, you’ll have the opportunity to listen to an engaging talk by Crohn’s and colitis experts as well as participate in our live Q&A session following the presentations.
